It is very much a current topic still.

Also, look at how certain games still hit steady 80-90 mark at reviews and then hit 50+ at Metacritic from average user score.. That there alone ought to worry some people, but apparently not.

Then again, journalism is a vocation, like minded people want to be journalists not to spread the news but to change the world.

Just like AGW narratives where there is money to be made for having one specific conclusion. Warped by cash incentives. ;)

Ah no. No climate researcher is making lots of money to produce a foregone narrative except for those who claim to be climate researchers but turn out not to be and who are being paid by big carbon.

Forgone narrative?

We're talking about science. Right?

I'm simply pointing out that introducing a big cash money funding reward into the scientific method, for a single specific outcome, completely ruins the concept of 'scientific method'.

I know you see this fatal conflict. This conflict of interest. Despite your devout beliefs.

This is also why every major political party, corporation, popular movement etc. orders their own scientific results and statistics from their favorite scientists and economists.

It's a match made in heaven - all the scientists looking for funding, being open to buying a nice villa and a boat and all the people who's money and political goals depend on the outcome having money to invest to make more or further your ideology/religion.

He makes some good points about YT. They DO seem to be intent on suicide! :P

I figure, let 'em go out. The data is not going to be deleted and in fact I would wager that at least 75% of it is backed up elsewhere. If they go down, someone else will go up! The beauty of the market!

Would be a shame, since the site is overall well-designed UI, has decent search, performs well, and has an amazing archive of stuff, plus quite a few really good talented content creators. But again, when firms go under, the resilient move on and the dead wood go and live under bridges.

ADDIT: re the second video on the Loot Box Atrocity . . . :lol: :mrgreen: :P
